Only Tuscany by Car provides GPS coordinates to guide you from one destination to another. Full instructions are provided so you can navigate confidently using your smartphone (or a Garmin or TomTom GPS device) to over 800 destinations in Tuscany!
For Garmin and TomTom GPS users, simply download the coordinate file from our website using the activation code provided in the book, then transfer the coordinates onto your separate Garmin or TomTom GPS device using your Windows PC or Mac computer. Then, after arriving in Italy, turn on the GPS device after picking up your rental car, let it “spool up” (it takes a few minutes for the device to locate and lock onto satellites in a different continent), select your destination from the list of Favorites and away you go!
For smartphone users, we now provide the option of using the Google Maps app to access all of our GPS coordinates on your smartphone. Further information about this world-exclusive feature is provided here.
